Are you returning over and over again to get waxed? At Zen Lifestyle Edinburgh we can offer a solution to your problem. Ellipse (IPL) or laser hair removal as it’s more commonly known is a permanent hair removal treatment that will bring a stop to the hair growth in desired areas.

How does IPL work?

Well, we use an Ellipse IPL machine that penetrates heat into the hair. Our laser hair removal machine produces small light pulses which are attracted to the hair colour (melanin). The energy produced is converted into heat destroying the hair follicle making it unable to produce any more hair. This method of permanent hair removal has been very popular in our Edinburgh salons and is attracting more and more fans.

Laser hair removal is most beneficial as part of a course. The reason for this is your hair grows in three different stages; each hair will be at a different stage of growth meaning the area will need several treatments to target all of the hairs.
A course of 6-9 treatments is recommended and will be needed to achieve the optimum results; however this can vary slightly depending on the area being treated and the individual’s hair growth.
Laser hair removal is the best way to achieve permanent hair reduction.

Ellipse IPL does more than permanent hair removal. At our Edinburgh salon we also use Ellipse IPL to treat acne prone skin, thread veins, pigmentation and aging skin.
